    Default I'm having the hardest time figuring out the structure of Java. I'm brand new.

    Am I right in saying this.

    You create two projects and that would equal two slides?

    Is it basically the same as building a website? You have files and folders.

    I want to build

    one button
    second button
    third button

    they go to five sections in the next button.

    then you get to simple text pages.

    What I'm trying to do is so simple, but I don't understand the structure layout of Java right now.

    I'm trying to build an android app using Indigo with the built in plugins.

    This is the place to start if you don't have a book: The Java™ Tutorials

    And if you want a good beginner book, check out Head First Java.

    I'm understanding this a little more. Basically in Java it's all in the same project? It's not like building a website with different files. It's all put into the same file?

    What do you mean by it? I'm a little worried that you didn't read about classes and objects

    Start with these: Trail: Getting Started (The Java™ Tutorials) and Lesson: Object-Oriented Programming Concepts (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language)

    I'm not trying to worry about learning coding right now. I just want to figure out how the structure for navigation works in Java.

    Do I basically need to drop all my ideas of this from web development and start over? The coding of Java isn't exactly the hard part. it's just trying to figure out the structure.

    Am I just thinking of it completely wrong? Can I use my experience with web development to move on to Java?

    When you build a website you put two pages together by a link basically. It's two different files.

    Is that how each slide works in Java or is it all one project for each page? Do I need to create two different files to have two different slides in Java?

    Should I be asking this in Android area?

    I just want to create two slides for an android application and link them together.

    I started with AS 2.0 and HTML && CSS. Soon after learning these I learned Java. One thing that I know to be a fact is that Web design, AS 2.0 (Flash 8 Actionscript) and Programming in general are all different. You need to know how to program to learn how Java is structured. Java can be a start, but coding, believe it or not, is a HUGE part of programming.

    To be honest, drop all of your ideas of web development and start with Java Programming. Although, these ideas combine in my mind in order to produce my GUIs in Java, but in your case, you are making the connection between way too literal.

    Learn how Android or Java programming works first and discover that making a GUI is not as easy as making a web page. Although, there are applications that do this for you, from what I have heard, is you are taking the easy route.
